In 2007, tensions between China, Japan, North and South Korea, and even the United States threaten to ignite all-out war. The root of this crisis is Japan's creation of a branch of its military that most of its neighbors view as a threat to regional peace. However, an inside group is also contributing to this crisis, and Special Agent Sam Fisher of Third Echelon is sent to the region to defuse the crisis and find out who is behind it. Written by

However, this ban was lifted in 2007, and also applied to some other games that depicts a war between the two Koreas. See more

And leave those pilots to die?
You have your orders. Call the air strike. That building will be a perfect vantage point.
[Sam picks one up
Fisher, I told you to leave them and call the air strike!
Yeah, well, you gave me my orders, and I'll follow them, once I get the pilots...
